Doesn't give coverage (don't need it much, anyway) but gives my face an ethereal, lovely glow.
Will I buy this again? Oh YES, YES, YES. I have three backups. :)
This is great for quick color and slight tint with spf protection. I love it!
This is not the best moisturizer ever, but every time i use it, my SO compliments me that my skin is glowing and i have a spark in my eyes...
That is why i have bought it not twice or thrice but several times.
I love the way almond oil makes my skin glow.
This is such a life saver for my skin. I'm prone to getting super dry skin in the winter and no matter how much I moisturize, I still get the little flakies when I apply foundation. So I decided to give this a try and no more dryness. I love the highlighting elements in it too as winter skin can end up looking dull. It's also great in the summer when it's too hot to wear anything. Only thing is that if you have any kind of skin discoloration, you may want to put on a base first or use a concealer. It's not pigmented enough to cover redness.
I love this product! It's lightweight, and mixes with any makeup. It leaves your face dewey and angelic, fresh and beautiful. Here's how i do it. I either put it on first before my foundation, mix it my foundation, or after apply it after my foundation is on, (sometimes i do all three when i need a lift) Also, i mix it for my cover up under the eyes, or pat it in gently over the cover up under eyes . Lasts forever
The formula and consistency is not exactly what I was expecting. Luckily I only got the sample/travel size! It's lovely for a cheekbone highlighter, but it is quite greasy so I won't be using it over my entire face.
That said, it does give a dewy glow, but I would stay away from this altogether if you have oily skin all over.
Finally, it doesn't give any coverage. The colour you see when you put it on your fingers totally disappears...and I mean totally! That usually means that a product is blending well, but not so much in the case of this one....it just leaves a glow and that is it. So, it's basically a liquid illuminating cream, not a tinted moisturiser. They should have just called it an illuminator in a tube. So, not totally worthless as I will continue to use this up as a dewy cheekbone highlighter, but I definitely will not be purchasing the large size.
I received this product as a gift from one of my closest friends for christmast and so far I'm really liking it! It came in a kit with five other sample sized foundation products. out of all them, i used this the most! coverage wise this has absolutely no coverage, at least on me (i have shade 01) so i don't really use it as a tm, but as a very soft highlighter on my cheekbone and on the bridge of my nose. i use bareminerals matte in medium tan and i find that it makes me look a little cakey, so i dab a little on my cheekbones and my nose and it instantly makes me look like i have fresh, dewy skin! the only bad part about this product is the price! after i'm done with the sample, which i think will last me about 6 months since i'm only using it as an highlighter, i would probably not purchase this product again. if it was only $20-$25 it would have been perfect!
its really oily but not that moisturizing.. and basically like a shimmery moisturizer without the tint since there is no coverage at all.
I love it! It used to be a daily product before I found another Stila tinted moisturizer that is even better!
- It is lightweight
- It is perfect if you are looking for a dewy summer look.
- You can get it in one of the Stila make up packs to avoid paying full price.
- It is great to wear in hot weather if you want to avoid heavy make up.
- It doesn't offer much coverage, though it is successful on covering blemishes
- It is definitely not a moisturizer and can dry out your skin. Use your daily moisturizer before applying it
I was lucky that I got this product as part of a Stila set, so I didn't pay full price for this ($69? in Australia).
It's too thick and doesn't apply smoothly. It also doesn't feel hydrating at all, too me it feels like i'm applying a thick foundation that doesn't really cover much.
It does give a the skin a more dewy appearance and evens out skintone, but I certainly would not purchase this on it's own. I'm only using it because it came in the set and it'd be a waste not to use it.
It's not the worst I've ever used, but it's not that great either.
